Hey norty got a question

I have same unit as yours. I have no instuctions how to winterize. Do you hook up hose on city water connection andturn on pump to suck out of rv antifreeze bottle? Also flip valves to sanitize and winterize? Anything else? Thanks

I got the information from the Owners Manual that came with the unit. In Plumbing under Winterizing. I have only done it once because we camp year round but I used the short hose that came with the rig connected to the City water connection and inserted in the gallon of RV anti freeze. Prior to that, I blew the lines out with water pressure per the instructions. Make sure the water heater is by passed and drained before adding anti freeze. There are 2 methods detailed. One with air pressure and the other with all anti-freeze.

It appears easier than other rigs I have owned because all the valves are right in one spot except for the low point drains. They are all over.

That's how it's done. Make sure to take the water filter out of the housing first. I used air first then used the anti freeze. Seems to take less if you use the air method first for me. You can go the jayco website and the simplified instructions are there. Did mine the other day in the rain. 25 mins and done.
